Warner Bros. Abandons Another DC Superhero Project Amid Cancellation Spree

Warner Bros. completed its merger with Discovery earlier this year, bringing with it a new regime under CEO David Zaslav. The newly-placed CEO is placed to deliver change across the board including the end of HBO Max and a new direction for the DC Universe, leading to the cancellation of many projects as of late.

This year alone has seen the cancelation of numerous TV shows from The CW like The Flash, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Batgirl, Wonder Twins, and Supergirl. HBO Max’s Batgirl was recently at the center of the cancellation controversy after Warner Bros. decided to abandon the streaming original movie, despite having already wrapped shooting.

Now, Warner Bros. Discovery appears to have put an end to another DC HBO Max Original.

DC Cancels Another HBO Max Project

The indie film legend, who was placed to write an episode of the DC series himself, confirmed – via ScreenRant – he recently discovered “Strange Adventures is officially dead” at HBO Max.

Strange Adventures may have been one to fly under the radar of many, but the loss is still a tragic one. The series marks another loss under Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav’s new regime, following the cancelations of Batgirl, Wonder Twins, and Supergirl​​​​​​.

There are plenty more projects that remain at risk of cancellation at DC, some of which will prove to be tragic losses for many. Hopefully, the end goal of finally creating a cohesive DC Cinematic Universe will ultimately be worth it, but only time will tell.

Warner Bros. has recently canceled seven DC projects and all signs indicate they are far from done.
